respectively is additionally employed in France, partially compensating for the weaknesses of classical diagnostic methods. We analysed a collection of bTB-like lesions from cattle presenting positive histological results albeit with negative PCR results. We present here the results of these samples, recovered from 292 animals culled between 2013 and 2016, analysed with a second line molecular diagnosis approach that consists in a combination of PCRs targeting the M. tuberculosis-M. avium complexes as well (...) Second line molecular diagnosis for bovine tuberculosis to improve diagnostic schemes. Surveillance of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is partly based on the sanitary inspection of carcasses at the abattoir to detect bTB-like lesions which, in compliance with EU recommendations, are analysed by bacteriology and histopathology to disclose Mycobacterium bovis (or M. caprae) infection. Moreover, since 2012, a PCR method with similar sensitivity and specificity values of histopathology and bacteriology

Synergy testing was performed using the chequerboard method for 22 reference strains and clinical isolates of Mycobacterium abscessus (MAB) and Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC). Time-kill kinetics (TK) assays with resistance monitoring of bedaquiline alone and combined with clofazimine were performed for MAB CIP 104536 and M. avium ATCC 700898; bedaquiline/clarithromycin combinations were evaluated against M. avium ATCC 700898. Interactions were (...) A bedaquiline/clofazimine combination regimen might add activity to the treatment of clinically relevant non-tuberculous mycobacteria. Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections are hard to treat. New antimicrobial drugs and smarter combination regimens are needed.Our aim was to determine the in vitro activity of bedaquiline against NTM and assess its synergy with established antimycobacterials.We determined MICs of bedaquiline for clinically relevant NTM species and Mycobacterium

using identical panels of 10 Mycobacterium avium (MAV) and Mycobacterium abscessus (MAB) isolates. EQA results were received from 16 laboratories utilizing the broth microdilution method. Consensus modal MIC values were determined, and essential and categorical agreement rates were calculated.Twenty-four out of 31 laboratories (77.4%) reported DST for NTM routinely. Essential agreement ranged from 78.8% (amikacin) to 96.2% (linezolid) for MAV and from 76.0% (amikacin) to 100% (doxycycline) for MAB (...) . Categorical agreement ranged from 56.8% (moxifloxacin) to 100% (clarithromycin) for MAV and from 53.6% (linezolid) to 100% (doxycycline) for MAB.Our results show that interlaboratory reproducibility of DST for NTM is insufficient, highlighting the need for expanding EQA schemes. As EQAs for Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex have led to more reliable and reproducible DST, we propose to follow a similar approach for clinically relevant NTM.

291. Interrelational changes in the epidemiology and clinical features of nontuberculous mycobacterial pulmonary disease and tuberculosis in a referral hospital in Japan. (Abstract)

changes in the epidemiology and clinical features of NTM-PD in relation to those of TB at a nationally-designated TB center in Japan.We reviewed all mycobacterial examination records at Fukujuji Hospital between 2006 and 2016. Cases of NTM-PD were defined according to the 2007 American Thoracic Society/Infectious Disease Society of America microbiologic criteria. The current characteristics of Mycobacterium avium complex pulmonary disease (MAC-PD) were compared with those in the 1980s and circa 2000 (...) and in patients 50-74 years for NTM. The most common causative organism for NTM was Mycobacterium avium complex (87.3%), M. abscessus complex (5.5%) and M. kansasii (3.9%). Among patients with MAC-PD, the proportion of the nodular bronchiectatic (NB) form increased significantly from 60.0% to 84.4% between circa 2000 and 2016 (P < 0.01). Significant increases in the NB form were observed in both males (33.3%-70.7%, P < 0.01) and females (71.3%-89.2%, P < 0.01).The annual number of incident NTM-PD cases

species were M. fortuitum (16.6%), M. novocastrense (16.6%), M. chelonae (10.0%), M. gordonae (6.6%), M. gadium (6.6%), M. peregrinum (3.3%), M. porcinum (3.3%), and M. flavescens (3.3%). There were no bacteria of the M. avium complex, the most frequently isolated NTM globally, and the main driver of the rise of NTM-lung diseases.This study uncovered an exceptional low prevalence of PNTM isolation among HIV-negative TB suspects in Northern Tunisia, suggesting a very low burden of NTM pulmonary disease (...) /100,000 was estimated. As far as could be ascertained, this isolation rate accounts amongst the lowest reported hitherto throughout the world. Among the 30 NTM isolates that were available for culture, 27 (90.0%) have been identified to the species level. The most commonly encountered species was Mycobacterium kansasii (23.3%) subtype 1. Strikingly, all M. kansasii cases were male patients originating from Bizerte, an industrialized region particularly known for iron industry. The remaining NTM

the tolerability and efficacy of a novel inhaled therapeutic in various mouse models of NTM disease.We developed clofazimine inhalation suspension (CIS), a novel formulation of clofazimine developed for inhaled administration. To determine the efficacy, minimum inhibitory concentrations were evaluated in vitro, and tolerability of CIS was determined in naïve mouse models over various durations. After establishing tolerability, CIS efficacy was tested in in vivo infection models of both Mycobacterium avium (...) and M. abscessus. Lung and plasma clofazimine levels after chronic treatments were evaluated.Clofazimine inhalation suspension demonstrated antimycobacterial activity in vitro, with MIC values between 0.125 and 2 μg/ml for M. avium complex and M. abscessus. Administration into naïve mice showed that CIS was well tolerated at doses up to 28 mg/kg over 28 consecutive treatments. In vivo, CIS was shown to significantly improve bacterial elimination from the lungs of both acute and chronic NTM-infected
